Columbia, Md. – RouteSmart Technologies and Integrated Skills, Limited announce commercial availability of RouteSmart Navigator – the first in-vehicle navigation system that synchronizes with all data provided from the route plan. More information will be available at WASTECON in Long Beach, California, September 17-19, 2013.

RouteSmart Navigator is an in-vehicle commercial-grade navigation system that integrates seamlessly with RouteSmart for ArcGIS route plan solutions. RouteSmart Navigator provides public works clients using RouteSmart for ArcGIS with the ability to send routes to the in-vehicle system in order to follow the optimized travel path. RouteSmart Navigator stands out from other solutions because it is designed specifically for handling large-scale public works routing challenges. Hundreds of stops can be viewed on a single route, and spoken instructions and important visual cues are provided throughout the route to make learning and following a route significantly easier. In addition to hands-off route guidance being spoken in the vehicle, RouteSmart Navigator also offers a “simulation mode” for route planners to use with training drivers on the new route plans before hitting the streets. RouteSmart Navigator incorporates the same street network data structure used to plan the routes, unlike other devices that use various street data formats. The result – spoken directions and stop location data are logical and consistent for the crews relying on the device for in-field navigation. RouteSmart Navigator accepts street and service comments and announcements to indicate requests, such as the need to collect a container from the side of the house for a citizen requiring special attention. Drivers are also able to divert from the route as necessary and record changes in the field to reflect real-world situations.
